Charles Aznavour – Sa jeneusse, Hier Encore

It has been almost a decade since my grandmother’s health took a turn for the worse, and while she was not in visible pain, she was also not very present since then. It is often hard to reconcile the memories we have of people and who they become, especially when it comes to illness and health issues. Now that she has passed, I know the part I carry with me the most is the person who read me bedtime stories then stayed with me as I fell asleep at the cottage.

I didn’t know her very well as an individual, the way a friend does, but I did discover my love of Chanson and Charles Aznavour through her.
